The Giro d’Italia has really delivered over the past week. Hats off to RCS, the race organisers, it's really had it all. We’ve had fireworks on the opening two days, plenty of Marco Pantani bandanas displayed on the roadside, superfast sprint finishes and breakaway chaos on the gravel. 

As if that wasn’t enough, all of the action has played out in the early summer sun across the stunning landscapes that Italy at this time of year offers up by the bucketful. It’s not only the scenery though that gives the Giro its style. The Tour de France’s yellow jersey might be the most iconic in the sport, but there’s something about the pink of the maglia rosa that just feels that bit cooler.
